4.0 out of 5 stars Rube Goldberg Would Be Proud! October 18, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an additive game of logic, gravity, physics and creativity. Rube Goldberg was famous for 'depicting complex devices that perform simple tasks in indirect, convoluted ways.'

The object of each level is to use the items that are already present on the screen and add the objects from a kind of pasteboard section to create a machine that completes a specified task.

In other words, you are given an requirement at the beginning of a level and you have to build a machine that makes that requirement happen. It might be to move a marble to a basket or to pop a series of balloons. The fun is that some objects are fixed in place and cannot be moved. You have to work with those objects or obstacles while adding the extras you get with each level. There is no guide as to where your extras belong, you have to think it out and try different placements. When you think you have a working machine, you hit the play button and watch as all the parts do their thing. If it works, great, if not, it's back to the drawing board.

Objects include everything from walls, gears, conveyor belts, balloons, scissors, weights, rope, catapults, etc. The farther you get in the game, the more complex the objects become and the more detailed the set-up of each machine can get.

Each level is timed but once you run out of time, there is no penalty. The more time you have left over, the higher your score. I found that once I took the time to complete a level, I would go right back and redo it as quickly as possible to get a "perfect" score.

There are additional challenges unlocked as you gain more perfects and complete more sections of levels.

It is fun and making the machines work is really neat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as good as ... October 19, 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Thumbs up for this game.

Two of my favorite DS games are Gravity and Crazy Machines. Build it, press play, and watch what happens. The physics in Logic Machines are good .... similar to Crazy Machines, not quite as perfect as Gravity, but far far better than the wreck of a game that Mechanic Master is.

3.0 out of 5 stars Single player saves only? A huge DS faux pas! December 28, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Most of the other reviews cover the gameplay well. It's simple to understand the controls, the puzzles are fun, and there's a scoring system to help encourage you to not waste time. :)

But, only one review mentioned what is IMHO the biggest flaw, something that IMHO is unconscionable on any game system, even the DS: the game will save only a single player's game!

That's right. Sharing the game and/or DS with your family? Hope you don't want to play this game until the other family member is done with it, because it can only track a single player.

It's bad enough so many games are limited to three players. But ONE?

It's still a good game, and deserves points for style and gameplay. But there's no way it can be a real contender with such a short-sighted design.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very hard brain teasers November 23, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is not your typical puzzle game.
This takes some serious brain excercising to solve the puzzles presented.
You are given a area with a mission. Get item 'A' to spot 'B'. Use the tools and items given to you in the inventory (which changes for each puzzle). Some of the early ones are very easy, just so you get the idea of how to play. But once you get going, the puzzles become real head scratchers.
This one is for the SERIOUS puzzle solving game player. I find the levels I am on now very hard. But still love it.
Recommended for older players (not young children) and adults. It will keep the gray cells sharp!

3.0 out of 5 stars Challenging with shortcomings March 9, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Challenging, but not frustrating to play.

At the end of the game, maybe 4-5 hours total, I was disappointed that that's all there was. I kept expecting a seriously hard level, and except for one of the bonus challenges, most puzzles/challenges were pretty simple to solve. (for me at least)

Only one person can save game/score at a time meaning it cannot be shared among a family like Brain Age or Mario Cart. That's a big disappointment.

Rent it if you must or you'll reselling this on Amazon after a couple weeks like we are.

4.0 out of 5 stars For older kids/adults---great fun January 8, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am an adult and LOVE to play this game it's quite addictive if you like to maneuver little bits and pieces to cause reactions to move parts around to solve the puzzles. It's amazing! I have one of those personalities where I don't give up until I get it so this is for me. I like solving the increasingly difficult challenges and puzzles but there are some drawbacks to consider:

1. You work on these logic machine puzzles in the umbrella of some weird, unexplained game in Egypt. The overall "game" is not explained in the directions. Each time you complete a puzzle you get another dot on an Egyptian trail for which the end goal is unknown to me... I finished about 20 puzzles and I am still just getting more dots.

2. There are no hints and you can only skip 5 puzzles. That said, if you aren't really patient, this might not be for you. I worked a puzzle where I had to shoot a slingshot at a gun to make it fire. The bullet cut a string that released a weight, etc. The slightest movement of the components or misfire of the slingshot throws the entire reaction off (like real life) so it takes perseverance to get these puzzles right. After you struggle and finally get the puzzle to work, it takes you to the "dot" trail and your creation is gone if you go back into the same puzzle. It would be nice if you could save it.

3. It is not always obvious how to use the tools in the "toolbox". It takes trial and error. I have used some sort of "magic cord" on several puzzles but I have no idea what I am doing with it.

4. I think the other awards and challenges you unlock as you go along are lame. I have little interest in those sections.

5. This is not easy and may really be geared for older kids and adults. My 8 year old likes to work with me on the various puzzles but he can't figure them out on his own yet and doesn't have the focus to keep trying something over and over again. He gets frustrated and bored.

This is a good game that makes you think. It arrived quickly and the only negative thing I can say about it is that the score doesn't work past 900, which really isn't a big deal... Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars A little boring
My kids rarely play this game. I think it's kind of neat, but they'd rather play Cut the Rope on my phone, which has neater graphics and accomplishes roughly the same thing.
